Craft Brewers’ Roundtable: Pilsner In Perspective Primary Image

For Issue 3 (Fall 2014) of Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine™, I polled some of the country’s best pilsner-makers on what makes this beer style what it is, and why it’s such a popular choice among brewers. They all agreed that pilsner is the most challenging style of beer to brew. They also concurred that pilsner is a style of beer that has stood the test of time, remaining generally unaltered since its inception.

Here are some of my favorite proclamations about pilsner that they shared.

“If you can brew a pilsner you can brew any other style of beer.” Mike Sardina, assistant executive officer at Societe Brewing in San Diego, California
